Low profile adjustable wrench?
Anyone got a recommendation?
I found this googling:
I asked them if they had a side profile or dimensional drawing (you would think, for a special tool, they would have one on their website). Their whole response was 'Yes the Jaws are tapered down to about .200"'
Does anyone have one that they can take a pic/measurements of?
Looking for something that will work for adjusting here (steering head on a KTM 450 with Scotts submount).
Without the submount my MotionPro 27mm axle/tire-iron combo wrench works but it's too wide to clear the black submount. Regular 8" crescent wrench is too tall (with damper removed). A 27mm socket would work but it's bulky and I'd have to remove the bars for clearance.
I'm not massively into carrying special tools on the trail .... but I'd been thinking of carrying a crescent wrench as they are versatile. I could skip carrying the Motion Pro 27mm if a low-profile crescent would adjust the bikes axles but not sure how well low-profile would work well for this. Advantage of the Motion Pro is it's alloy so it weighs next to nothing. The VIM weighs .62 pounds.
